Many consumers still think of home ownership as the American Dream. Saving for a down payment is often times the number one barrier to achieving that dream. Even with lower home prices and record low interest rates, many potential home buyers are unable to save for a suitable down payment.

Many of the Active Residential listings in our database may be eligible for one or more assistance program.
